Your new company

An award-winning residential developer that is undergoing a period of significant investment and expansion of their planning and design teams. They are a long-established SME housebuilder with decades of experience in developing both greenfield and brownfield new build sites. Due to recent success, ambitious growth plans and the fact that they are on track to deliver 800 units a year by 2025, they are looking to bolster their team with the hiring of a Planning Manager. They have identified a gap in the mid-to-senior management roles, and so are looking for an ambitious Planning Manager to oversee the planning team in the state-of-the art North-west office. They are keen to promote from within and have established clear pathways to director-level from mid-to-senior management positions. They offer flexible working and have a great understanding of the need for a work/life balance, offering provision to work from home on an ad-hoc basis

Your new role

Working collaboratively with the Design and Land teams, you will be integral in the Planning aspect for new build residential developments which can vary in size from 20 to 300+ units. You will be responsible for helping deliver design concepts, planning applications with various local councils across the North West, establishing feasibility of sites, dealing with Section 106 agreements and long-term strategic planning. As part of a growing team, you will be tasked with assisting both the Land and Design teams, reporting directly into the Senior management team.

What you'll need to succeed

The ideal candidate will have some experience working clientside in the residential sector, identifying strat sites, assessing feasibility and town planning.
